REST API - Create issue - formatted description with markdown not working in next gen project

I'm trying to create an issue with a formatted description field trough the REST API for a next gen project. For whatever reason the markdown is just rendered as normal text.

Any idea why this is not working?

'description': { 
'type': 'doc',
'version': 1,
'content': [
'text': 'This is some **bold** text.',
'type': 'text'
